Recruitment Events This Summer You Won't Want To Miss!

Recruiting events 2018

Recruiters and HR managers work with one thing above all else – people. It stands to reason that meeting with likeminded people within their industry should be a top priority when looking to advance careers and gain better results. Conferences, meetups, and events have the ability to ignite ideas, motivate individuals, and bring potential business partners together – who would want to miss these opportunities?

Here are just some of the recruitment and HR events that SocialTalent are looking forward to in 2018.

DEAM18: The Direct Employers Annual Meeting and Conference

Where? Seattle

When? April 24th – 26th

The Direct Employers Annual Meeting and Conference 2018 takes place in Seattle later this month and will address the changing and expanding role of the modern HR professional. With roles changing constantly, it’s important that professionals now understand that they are also brand ambassadors, marketers, company salespeople, and data analysts.

Speakers and topics at the event are incredibly diverse, with a heavy focus on the importance of diversity, inclusion and creativity in HR roles. Be sure to look out for SocialTalent’s CEO Johnny Campbell’s talk on Wednesday 18th titled ‘RIP Talent Acquisition: Welcome to the war for skills!’
